Acquisitions are a key element of our growth strategy. Over the past 20 years, acquisitions represent 60% of total growth and the group has made 200 acquisitions which have accounted for more than €10 billion of sales.

We are always looking for new companies that are willing to join a family-owned group, where the diversity and well-being of our associates are valued the most, where we work based on a high level of compliance standards and common values, and where investing in our associates and teams is a priority.

Over the past few months, our teams met Sonepar associates to tell their story. Stories from entrepreneurs, stories of growth, those are Sonepar’s success stories. Let’s deep dive into this webseries with the first episode: Spain.
